The 2012 NASCIO Survey includes the table shown here (I added the bar chart for clarity). Those describing themselves as “highly invested” only grew by 1%, but 65% more reported having some applications in the cloud and considering others. Furthermore, those still investigating dropped by almost 68%. In other words, 2012 has been a huge year for cloud adoption by state governments. The chasm has been crossed and the crowd is following the early adopters at an increasing rate.
